This has become my ultimate lazy day outfit, when I'm not wearing pyjamas that is! It took me a long time to jump on the leggings bandwagon but I can finally see what all the fuss was about. Leggings aren't trousers though, I don't want to see your bits and pieces when I'm out shopping, no ta! I wish this shirt was a couple of inches longer, this is my lazing around the house outfit for that reason. I wouldn't even nip to the shops in this to be honest, it needs jeans for that but I talked about my hatred of jeans the other day. I see those body con skirts used quite a bit when wearing a short-ish top and leggings combination but I don't own one and I'm not convinced it would look right with this outfit. Nevermind, this is my absolute favourite shirt, it's flattering but not overly tailored which I really like.
I've had quite a few comments and questions about my hair recently since it's much lighter than it used to be all thanks to the John Frieda Lightening Spray. This stuff is seriously amazing. I've been being quite sporadic with it as in not applying it perfectly all over my hair because I wanted a bit of variation. My hair has never been all one colour, there's always been lighter bits and darker bits and I wanted to keep that. My whole colour has been lifted by 2 or 3 shades I would say & I have some super light parts and some more honey coloured parts which I adore. I've had to use a purple toned shampoo as well because I found my hair went extremely yellow at one point but the shampoo worked a treat & my toned my hair into a slightly more ashy colour. Perfecto. I honestly know nothing about hair & don't really do a lot to it apart from backcomb it too much - oops! I can always pop up a hair care routine if anyone's interested? Let me know!
Lily from Beauty's Bad Habit popped this vintage ship wheel brooch in the post for me because it's not something she would wear and I'm so happy she thought of me because I LOVE it! Brooches aren't usually my thing because I find them quite hard to style but this one will go with so many things in my wardrobe. It's perfect for giving simple cardigans something a little something extra and since I live in cardigans this beautiful brooch will be getting a lot of wear! Thank you so much Lily!

Since I love the Collection 2000 concealer so much I had a look at the matching foundation in boots yesterday & the lightest shade seemed to be pretty orange, I was super disappointed although maybe it had just been sitting out for ages! Has anyone tried it before? I really struggle to find foundations that are light enough! I may have to fight my fear of make up counters & visit a couple to see if anyone has the perfect foundation - I want pale, medium coverage & a dewy non-drying formula. Is that too much to ask?
My make up collection is outgrowing its storage & I'm forgetting about products I used to love! I don't think Viva Glam Gaga lipstick suits me that much anymore even though I loved it when I first got it. I was thinking about getting an acrylic lipstick holder but I don't want to spend a fortune. eBay doesn't have many so I'm not sure where else to look.
What did you wear today?
P.S. Adele was AMAZING last night but I'm sure I'll bore you all with that later in the week! I will say if you get the chance to see her live, definitely go! She's an absolute babe and even more gorgeous in real life! She has achieved so much and she's only one year older than I am. Even though I'm never going to sell 10 million albums (no one should ever have to hear me sing!) I can do something with my life. And I will. I will achieve something, I'm more determined than ever.
